Site Cover Image Explained Alberobello, Italy

Non-Millennial Live Home Page Image Trulli

by Maryanne

Alberobello, Bari, Italy, is where part of my family hails from.

Trullis

This quaint, unique town in Southern Italy, founded in the 11th century, is one of the most picturesque and amazing places I’ve ever visited and couldn’t be more Non-Millennial.

The buildings in the site’s cover image are known as Trullis.  Alberobello is the only place in the world where they exist.

These particular Trulli’s are iconic for the town.  If you search, you’ll see the similar pictures multiple times.

They also used to be the carriage house of my family.

In fact, the whole street from the home at the top of the hill and all the way down the street at one time were home to many of my family.  Some are still there.

Connection to Heritage

One of the things that is good and bad is how the connection to heritage is fading.

My grandparents immigrated to the US in the 1920s, and growing up we knew the story of their passage and reasons for coming to the US.

M1, 2 and 3 , all love Italy.   However, connecting to heritage is not a big part of their lives.

That’s good because it reduces stereo types and allows them to befriend people for their value.

It’s bad, because the story of each family adds understanding to the values they are raised with.

Since this blog is personal in many ways, it felt right to use an image that is both gorgeous, rare and related to who I am.

Visit Alberobello

Not that I’m part of their Department of Tourism, but if Italy is on your bucket list, after you visit the more known destinations (Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence, Capri, Napoli, Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, etc.) add Alberobello.   It will not disappoint.

In fact, I’m willing to suggest eliminate one of the destinations on your list and replace it with Alberobello.

The area is beautiful, the people warm and full of life and the food will make you think you’ve never eaten Italian food in your life.

It’s that good.

Do you think understanding heritage is a good thing?

What Is a NonMillennial? over 35, generation’s traits

by Maryanne

A NonMillennial is … someone who is over 35 and has had to give up their generation’s traits to adapt to or help guide and/or communicate with Millennials on a regular basis.

Now some people cannot claim this title.

For instance … If you are a grandparent with a child who is 36+, and your grandchildren are under 13, you cannot term yourself a NonMillennial.

If you have the same scenario, plus you have to work with someone under 36 more than 10 hours a week, then you can assert NonMillennial status.

True, it can be complicated.

Centricity

The key to the whole scenario is this … a NonMillennial must interact and revolve around a Millennial(s) in a meaningful way.

Levels of Millennial/NonMillennial

So, yes, there are levels of NonMillennialness.

The question becomes … is it something to strive for?  It’s the “to be or not to be” of the 36+ crowd (and some day the 13 and under crowd).

For Perspective – Here is the list of previous generations and their new NonMillennial names.

Again, you can only claim these if you interact with Millennials.  Otherwise, you keep the generation name you were born into.

Here’s the list …
